In Memory of Sister Alice Marie

With heavy hearts the staff and board members of St. Barnabas Senior Services announce the passing of Sister Alice Marie Quinn on June 23rd, 2017.

A longtime SBSS partner and community leader Sister SAM founded St. Vincent Meals on Wheels on July 7, 1977, with a single pot of stew in a church basement and 83 seniors in attendance. Sister SAM served as the organizations Executive Director for 40 years.  St. Vincent Meals on Wheels went on to become the largest Meals on Wheels program, delivering nearly 3,500 meals a day.

Because of her tireless work, many older adults were able to be fed and remain healthy in their community. Our thoughts and condolences go out to Sister Alice’s friends and family, her team at St. Vincent Meals on Wheels, and all the clients she touched during her time with Meals on Wheels.

Her life of service has inspired everyone who knew her. She never wavered in her commitment to serve the homebound seniors and those living in poverty.
